Eshowe Golf Club (18) (Kwazulu Natal, Zululand, Eshowe)
Eshowe Golf Club (18)
One of the oldest golf courses in Kwa-Zulu Natal, the course was designed in 1907. Excellent country club facilities and lovely surroundings.
The Eshowe Country Club is situated on the Eshowe Hills Eco Estate in Eshowe and as such meanders through the famous Dhlinza forest and grasslands which are rich in indigenous fauna and flora. Strict environmental controls have ensured that the local birdlife and animals have been well catered for - the Dhlinza forest is famous for its wide variety of birdlife.
The course itself has recently been upgraded by former European PGA Champion, Jeff Hawkes. The course was designed by that most famous of South African course architects - Bob Grimsdell and Jeff has ensured that none of its original character has been lost.
The course is not long and you could be forgiven for thinking that it might not test the more skilled golfer, do not be fooled, it is a real test of golf and at the same time can be enjoyed by golfers of all handicaps. The 11th hole is a good example, at only 279 meters this par 4 is no push over. Your tee shot is all important, too long and you are in a large pond guarding the front of the green, with trees on the right the aproach has to be spot on. A par is always welcome here to even the best of golfers.
With the introduction of 5 new water holes the course has now taken on a parklike character which has in turn attracted a wide variety of water birds.

Eshowe Country Club
The sound of the breeze rushing through the Dlinza Forest in the heart of the town is the romantic explanation for the town`s name. The more scientific is that it is a corruption of the isiZulu word ishongwe, meaning `milkbush shrubs`, also prominent in the area.
The town, lying on a plateau and thus protected from the subtropical humidity of surrouding areas, was proclaimed a magistracy in 1887 upon Zululand`s annexation by Britain and became the capital of Zululand. It has since lost this status but has grown to support a 1 800km agricultural district.
